View Full Version : Best Bourbon for the $

How about a thread on bourbon the way many of us buy it? By looking in our wallet and seeing just what we can afford. Which bourbon's are the best buy, give you better quality then you might expect based on their price? What's the favorite under $15? $25? $35?

Obviously, Maker's Mark has to be on this list.

We've done this before. I think standard Old Fitzgerald is a very good value, as are Evan Williams and Elijah Craig. In the Beam family, Jim Beam Black Label is very reasonably priced. For a long time, my best recommendation for a good, really cheap bourbon was Ten High, but I haven't had it recently.
